Transform Your Chest with These 5 Exercises

The Chest or Pec area is the staple to any body whether your goal is the protect or destroy here are 5 exercises that will help your chest, Transformers style.

1. Incline Bench Press
This is the Optimus Prime of the Chest Exercises. This will help with your strength not only in the chest but other supporting muscles like the triceps and your shoulders. Start your workout with 3 sets of 10 reps increasing the weight each time. Turn that chest from a pick up to an 18 wheeler.

2. Incline Dumbbell Press
This is the Ironhide of the chest exercises as it hits your upper part of the pecs. Perform this exercise with light weights, a slight incline and do 3 sets of 12 reps. Your upper chest will turn into a GMC with a Hemmy

3. Flat Dumbbell Press
This is the Megatron of you chest workout. It will not only give you a little size, but will also firm up the pecs. Try to use heavier weights and perform 3 sets of 10 reps increasing the weight each time will help you turn from a small Cessna to a leer jet.

4. Cable Cross Over
Bumblebee - this exercise is great to give you the separation between the pecs. Stand between the cable machine. Although it is called the cross-over, make sure to bring the handles together and squeeze your pecs. 3 sets of 12 will turn those pecs into a racing car

5. Dips
Call this the Starscreeam or dips because you will feel like you’re flying. It is a great way to end the workout. Most gyms have weight assisted machines to help you, but if you are a true Autobot then no assembly required. 3 sets of 10 will do the trick.

Remember to stretch between exercises and do a warm up set before to get the blood pumping to the muscles. Perform this workout once a week for a month and you chest will become MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!
